Cover for the 1973 album by American undertaker, organist and gospel singer Merrill Womach (1927–2014), featuring Lydian Cursive in all caps — ouch. The artist’s name is set in lowercase letters from (Neue) Aurora Condensed or Inserat-Grotesk, with an upside-down ‘m’ used for ‘w’ — a signature introduced with the 1969 release A Time For Us.
